The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson on Thursday, declared that he’d “rather be dead in a ditch” than ask the European Union to delay Brexit.
Johnson’s comment, which was said in response to a question about whether he’d ask Brussels for a delay, came during a speech at a police training centre in West Yorkshire.
As it stands now, Johnson’s chances of eking out an October 31 Brexit and avoiding asking the E.U. for a delay at a summit October 17 seem unlikely according to reports, but the Prime Minister does have several possible moves.
The divisions over Britain’s departure from the EU has divided the Prime Minister’s party, and also deprived him of his parliamentary majority.
